Cortico-hippocampal interplay and the representation of contexts in the brain by Robert Miller( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the cerebral cortex represents the outside world, many small portions of information from that world may be inherently ambiguous; but nevertheless, their ambiguity can be resolved if the wider context in which they occur is also specified. It is argued that, using schemes of representation so far envisaged (such as cell assemblies), there are fundamental limitations to the use of contexts to resolve ambiguity, which are set by the limited number of connections each cortical neurone makes with its neighbours. A theory of how the hippocampal theta rhythm can entrain populations of neurones in the cerebral cortex into resonant neural activity is developed and discussed in relation to connectional neuroanatomy, innate behaviour, learning of new behaviour and neuronal models of the hippocampus. In addition, many aspects of the theta rhythm are discussed, such as sources of control, neuronal sources of generation, effect of lesions, and neuronal models of the hippocampus
Arguments against secular culture by Robert Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first part maps out the dominant philosophical viewpoint ... in the modern world ... its relationship to the growth of scientific knowledge ... the second part looks at the whole area of human subjectivity and the relationship of the mind to the brain. The last part argues that modern men and women need myths"--Back cover
Cortical areas : unity and diversity( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing a modern perspective to the study of areas in the cerebral cortex, this book explores the correspondence of different methods of mapping areas as well as addressing fundamental questions often asked in neurobiology and brain theory
Brain dynamics and the striatal complex by Robert Miller( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brain Dynamics and the Striatal Complex, the first volume in the Conceptual Advances in Brain Research book series, aims to relate dynamic function to cellular structure and synaptic organization in the basal ganglia. The striatum is the largest nucleus within the basal ganglia and therefore plays an important role in understanding structure/function relationships. Areas covered include dopaminergic input to the striatum, organization of the striatum, and the interaction between the striatum and ......"
A theory of the basal ganglia and their disorders by Robert Miller( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Theory of the Basal Ganglia and Their Disorders provides a view of basal ganglia that integrates evidence from the basic neurosciences, neurology, and psychiatry. The author explores the basal ganglia within a context of the function of the mammalian forebrain as a whole." "While many books cover cutting-edge research, none have addressed large-scale questions about the role of the basal ganglia as a whole. This is arguably the only book published in the last fifty years that has attempted to provide an overall theory of the basal ganglia, as well as relevant areas of neurology and psychiatry. It concisely presents the theory, rather than comprehensively covering all the literature, and places the essential clinical facts within a framework formulated for normal operations of the basal ganglia. Presenting a unified view, the book takes several steps toward unraveling the riddle that is basal ganglia."--Jacket
Time and the brain by Robert Miller( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the days of Galileo, time has been a fundamental variable in scientific attempts to understand the natural world. Once the first recordings of electrical activity in the brain had been made, it became clear that electrical signals from the brain consist of very complex temporal patterns. This can now be demonstrated by recordings at the single unit level and by electroencephalography (EEG). Time and the Brain explores modern approaches to these temporal aspects of electrical brain activity. The temporal structure as revealed from trains of impulses from single nerve cells and from EEG re
Complex brain functions : conceptual advances in Russian neuroscience by Robert Miller( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are many difficulties hindering western scientists from becoming acquainted with Russian scientific literature, including both political and language barriers. Russian science has a long and proud tradition going back as far as Peter the Great and the founding of the Russian Academy of Science in 1725. However, Russian neuroscientists from the 19th and 20th centuries are hardly recognised in the western world. Complex Brain Functions covers many avenues of contemporary research in Russian neuroscience. The chapters range from basic research at the cellular level to studies of higher brain functions in animals and humans, including psychopharmacology and neurochemistry and the brain basis of human mental functions as well as papers with a more philosophical content
Axonal conduction time and human cerebral laterality : a psychobiological theory by Robert Miller( Book )

Straight talking about mental illness : with emphasis on schizophrenia : an educational guide by Robert Miller( Book )

An outline of psychiatry in clinical lectures : the lectures of Carl Wernicke by Carl Wernicke( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is a collection of Carl Wenicke's lectures on neuropsychiatry translated into English for the first time. Beginning with basic concepts about normal brain function, the book moves to clinical topics, dealing first with chronic mental disorders and 'paranoid states', and then to the more complex area of acute mental disorders. Many of the featured topics are still clinically relevant, and matters of contemporary debate. Carl Wernicke is one of the pioneers of neurology and psychiatry; clinicians, researchers and historians will find this of great interest.--[Source inconnue]
Sex differences in lateralization in the animal brain by V. L Bianki( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until recently, little account has been taken of sex differences in many research studies in psychiatry, medicine and physiology. Subjects of these research studies were mainly men, with most researchers using twice as many males as females in their studies. The need to take a sexually differentiated approach has led to the work described in this book, concerning detailed investigations into the correlations between functional asymmetry of the brain and sex. Sex Differences in Lateralization in the Animal Brain is the first monograph summarizing the sexual specificity of functional lateralization of the brain in animals and humans. It is based on original experimental data from animals and will be of interest to biologists, psychologists and neurobiologists. Bianki; V L, Filippova; E.B. St

A Theory of the Basal Ganglia and Their Disorders by Robert Miller( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides a coherent view of basal ganglia that integrates evidence from the basic neurosciences, neurology, and psychiatry. This book develops a conceptual theory based on the normal function of basal ganglia. It details the mechanisms that relate basic pathology to the manifestation of symptoms for related disorders
